Article first published online: 16 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/2014GL059858

Key Points

  • Cycle 24 CMEs expand anomalously due to the reduced ambient pressure
  • The expansion results in weak ICME magnetic field, hence weak magnetic storms
  • Weak ambient magnetic field reduces efficiency of SEP acceleration by shocks
